Media reviews
'The International Whaling Commission has complex history and deals with fascinating issues in respect of which attitudes have changed markedly since the organisation was founded in 1946. Al Gillespie has been through all the records and knows the story well; even better he knows in practical terms how it works since he has been a distinguished member of the New Zealand delegation to the Commission for years. There can be few who know more about this controversial international body. The book demonstrates excellent research on many fronts and is full of valuable insights on a topic that will only become more important over time.' - Rt Hon Sir Geoffrey Palmer, former Prime Minister of New Zealand, and current Commissioner for New Zealand to the International Whaling Commission; 'Gillespie's book is a very valuable study of whaling, which adopted a holistic approach to the subject and which represents a very high standard of academic research. It strikes an excellent balance between theory and practice and therefore, should be of interest for both academics and practitioners. The book addresses all the controversial areas of whaling and offers a solid legal and philosophical background.' - Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary, University of London, UK
